Local gymnasts share college award

Two North Shore Gymnastics Association (NSGA) alumni share the honor of college conference scholar athlete of the year award.

UW-Lacrosse’s Tegan Oare from Wayzata and UW-Whitewater’s Siri Wischmann from Delano have been named the co-recipients of the 2013 Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Judy Kruckman women’s gymnastics scholar athlete award.

Oare and Wischmann both competed for NSGA throughout their high school gymnastics careers before competing in college four years.

Both earned a grade point average of more than 3.75 and were named to the collegiate Academic All-American team.
